Believer reviews editor Daniel Levin Becker wrote a book about the Oulipo. An excerpt appeared in the February 2012 issue. I am considering taking a Megabus to Chicago to attend the above event, since Levin Becker is, like his book, generous, funny, and wise. Actually, I don’t think I have time to go to Chicago and back that weekend, but I will still pick up a copy of this book, which Kirkus described as “more palatable than expected.” I’m sold.
